About the UEA Online Training Series

The UEA Training Series offers research and professional skills training for PGRs in a ‘live-taught’ online format, meaning you can attend at a time and location that suits you. Training sessions are delivered via a virtual classroom, usually in the evening from 19.00 but also on weekday mornings at 10.00.

The course consists of five modules, each with multiple online sessions per term: 

  • Module 1: Academic Writing
  • Module 2: Qualitative Research Skills (including NVivo)
  • Module 3: Finishing your PhD
  • Module 4: Teaching Skills
  • Module 5: Quantitative Research Skills

See our online resources page for further details, including information on the software that you’ll need to download before your first session.

The University of Sussex Doctoral School does not deal with bookings for UEA workshops. If you have any problems, you want to ask a question, or there is anything you don’t understand, please email
